Sarcasm/Irony Detection with Sentiment Analysis?

textmining

#1

Anyone know of any sentiment analysis tools to detect sarcasm/irony? Googling this, I saw that @mara asked around about a year ago, and it doesn't seem like there was anything at the time. I've tried RSentiment and for some reason it'll never classify text as sarcastic.

I never found anything that was implemented in a format I could easily use/adapt. However, it looks like the authors of my personal favourite paper on it held a tutorial:

Joshi, Aditya, Pushpak Bhattacharyya, and Mark James Carman. “Automatic Sarcasm Detection: A Survey.” arXiv preprint arXiv:1602.03426 (2016).

FYI, more recent journal version of Joshi et al. here (seriously).

Well, it's better than the $50-for-24-hours offer from Taylor & Francis I came upon yesterday…
